I-myself and me-myself

This refers to the conscious, strategic, speculating, calculating, initiating "I" and the subconscious, spontaneous, reacting, intuitive "Me."

Cognitive psychologists sometimes refer to them as "system two" and "system one" respectively. System one receives an enormous quantity of information through the senses; system two receives only a greatly reduced, filtered version.

One has to educate the "I" and one has to train the "Me."
